Spring Creek has a nice, new building with great playgrounds and other amenities that come with a new facility. It is located in a nice middle-class neighborhood with families that care about education and want to be involved. We were excited to be a part of this school. We quickly realized that most of the kids in this area do not attend Spring Creek. Their parents drive them to other schools in Provo district or to charter schools. The majority of the students are bussed in from the other side of Provo where the demographics are very different. This is not necessarily bad, but know that everything sent home is in English and Spanish because many parents do not speak any English. We discovered that the teachers are excellent and really care about their students. However, when a class of 18 has 15 of those students below grade level, there is only so much a teacher can do. The students who are on or above grade level are pretty much ignored or asked to help the other students. There is so much potential, but this school was dealt a difficult hand, which is why many of the students who live in the boundaries for this school go somewhere else.

Spring Creek has been a great experience for my grandchildren. They make every effort to match the student with the teacher, so that they can have the greatest success in their schooling. The principle and the entire staff are dedicated to providing the best education possible for the students and I think they all need a great big THANK YOU for a job well done.

As the Principal at Spring Creek I hope that greatschools.org will post the most accurate information possible about our school. The data used for this rating is old. Over the past 2 years the school has made significant improvements in Language Arts and Math scores. Check out the school's website for the most current data to see that there has been an increase of 20% in both areas. It is time to update the rating of this school. Great things happen every day and our plans for the future will only bring about more success.

The current Spring Creek staff and administration leaves a lot to be desired. Spring Creek is a young institution giving the impression of being overwhelmed.

My son just started kindergarten this year. At first, there seemed to be a real lack of communication between the school and parents. No kindergarteners knew who their teacher was until two days before school started. We were unable to meet teachers before school started in August. Now however, things are fine, it's apparent that the parents have to take a very active role to know what's going on in the classroom. We were a bit disappointed in the school at first, but now that we're there and participating, it's making all the difference in the world. It's a beautiful, recently built school. The office staff is wonderful!
